The Basics of Managing Your Diabetes

,

Diabetes, it turns out, is as much a lifestyle as it is a disease. Think back to when you were first diagnosed: In addition to the new medications and tests and doctor's visits, you suddenly needed to change the way you live, at least in some aspects and perhaps in many. This happens whether you're type 1 or type 2, male or female, young, old, or in between. Diabetes and its attending conditions can affect the way you eat, exercise, work, travel—even sleep.
